The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and Music Director Manfred Honeck are giving audiences the unique opportunity to “choose their Mozart” during the BNY Mellon Grand Classics “Mozart: The Last Three Symphonies” concerts on April 21-23 at Heinz Hall.
These concerts mark the start of a two-week festival celebrating the musically rich history of Vienna. Late 18th-century and early 19th-century Vienna was the greenhouse in which Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert all creatively blossomed, composing some of their most delightful and best-loved orchestral works. Honeck artfully combines the music of these four masters into three distinct concerts, each of which features one of Mozart’s last three symphonies. Symphonies No. 39, 40 and 41, "Jupiter" were written in a creative burst during the summer of 1788 and represent perhaps the most stunning culmination of Mozart's symphonic genius. Across the weekend, fellow Austrian Till Fellner joins to perform Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3.
